ST. PAUL – After coming away with a 6-3 victory over Hamline University on Friday evening in St. Peter, the Gustavus Adolphus women’s hockey team found a similar result in round two with the Pipers, as they defeated Hamline 4-0 at Oscar Johnson Arena on Saturday evening.

The Gusties took advantage of two power play situations and Carolyn and Diana Draayer scored four out of the seven Gustavus points on the evening to help the Gusties improve to 4-0-0 in the MIAC and 5-0-0 overall. The loss drops Hamline to 0-3-1 on the season.

After a scoreless first period, Gustavus jumped on the home team in the second. Four and a half minutes into the game’s middle frame, Shelby Teal was assessed a penalty for roughing, and :42 seconds later, Carolyn Draayer (Sr., Deephaven Minn.) scored her second goal of the season unassisted. Only three minutes passed before Carolyn’s little sister Diana Draayer (Fy., Deephaven, Minn.) scored the first goal of her career off a pass from fellow rookie Erica Power (Lakeville, Minn.). The Gusties weren’t done there though, and at the 12:00 mark, Power found a pass from Carolyn Draayer and gave Gustavus a 3-0 lead after sinking her third goal of the season. Power is now tied for second in the MIAC with eight points on the season and leads the team in both goals (3) and assists (5).

In the third period, senior defender Marissa Brandt (Vadnais Heights, Minn.) took advantage of another Hamline penalty to score her first goal of the season, off another assist from Carolyn Draayer. The penalty was one of eight for the Pipers, who average nine penalty minutes per game this season.

Lindsey Hibbard (Jr., Princeton, Minn.) got the start between the pipes for Gustavus and recorded her second shutout of the season to bring her record to 4-0-0. Hibbard made 19 saves to bring her total to 92 on the season. She now has a  goals against average of 0.42 on the year and a save percentage of .979, both good for second in the MIAC. Hibbard was also able to hold Hamline scoreless on its six power play opportunities.

Gustavus easily eclipsed the 40-shot mark for the third time this season, outshooting the Pipers 47-19 on the evening. The Gusties also had the advantage on faceoffs, winning 45-of-69.

Gustavus will face its stiffest competition of the season in its next game when they travel to Plattsburgh, N.Y. to take on No. 1 ranked Plattsburgh State on Nov. 29. Faceoff for that game is scheduled for 6 p.m. central time.
